More Violence in Juarez

The owner of a used car lot at 7015 Capulin (near Blvd. Zaragoza) in Juarez was kidnapped on Saturday afternoon by four armed men who arrived at the car lot and forced Jorge Nicolas Fonseca Cruz, 47, to enter a late-model automobile they were driving. The men were wearing mouth covers like many people are now wearing to minimize the risks of contracting swine flu.

Two young men were killed by gunfire while they were parked in a black Ram-2500 pickup outside a Super Six convenience store on km 16 of the Chihuahua-Cuauhtémoc highway. Witnesses saw the assassins leave their vehicle, open the passenger side of the pickup and fire shots at the heads of the victims. Six spent shells were found nearby.

The body of a man was found on Friday afternoon in an irrigation ditch near km 38 on the Juarez-Porvenir highway. His hands were tied behind his back with duct tape and there was a cord around his neck.
